ANC faces tough challenge in S Africa vote

Opposition parties hope to tap into discontent against ruling party in Wednesday's vote.

    For the first time in 20 years, South Africa's ruling party could face a serious challenge in Wednesday's election.

    The African National Congress has won every poll since 1994 but its popularity has been damaged by a series of corruption scandals.

    The ANC's opposition is now hoping to tap into that discontent.
